The king of Westeros asks an old friend to come serve by his side
Why Buy? The king of Westeros asks an old friend to come serve by his side, but the politics and machinations of the various families of power throughout the Tales From The Crypt Season 1-7 them all inexorably toward war.

HBO’s ten-episode adaptation of George RR Martin’s first novel in his A Song of Ice and Fire series is a visual and dramatic feast of treachery, combat, sex, and more treachery. I’m not much of a fantasy fan in general, but the show’s depth and care given to its myriad characters make for a constantly surprising and fascinating show. Amidst the many great characters/actors, Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys, Maisie Williams’ Arya and Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion are the three most consistently endearing and engaging.

Billy Zane appears briefly early on here, but his presence is a Numb3rs Seasons 1-6 as the action shifts away from him towards some far less charismatic characters. The soldiers on both sides are generic and forgettable… as is the action. And that’s the real issue here.
